    Need new battery for dell precision m65

    Hi all

    The battery on my girlfriends laptop is dying and needs replacing, where would be the best place to get a replacement, direct from dell or elsewhere? I'm not familiar with laptop batteries at all so any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Andy

    Wouldn't really comment getting from Dell. The cells might not be fresh so the battery life wouldn't be stellar. I bought 2 original dell batteries for my laptop and they come usually at about 95% the rate capacity, instead of 105-110% for very fresh battery.

    You could consider getting OEM battery for that. Or if you can find a shop that specialize in battery repacking you can try that too. (Basically just taking the old lithium cells out and put in some new one).

    I have previously used Eurobatteries (I think based in Bristol) and they were OK but that was a couple of years ago.
